Auction duration bug

Post by Yotbol » Wed Aug 12, 2009 7:38 pm

Is the duration of the auctions a set amount of time(24, 48, 72 hours)? Or is it randomized a bit(for example an 1 day auction can end in 23 hours and 45 mins for example or even 24 hours and 20 mins)?

Because this funny thing happened. Some auction was opened, from 112 millions starting price to 120 or so buy now.

And here is the tricky part:

23:48 You have succesfully bought Trip to the Moon, for $112,000,000, auctioned by -hidden-.

Considering none can create an auction with a starting price over $100,000 between 23:00 and 0:00 game time, how can an auction end at 23:48? Actually this auction was created at around 0:04 I think, almost 3 days before that incident. Actually it lasted around 2 days, 23 hours and 46 minutes instead of the whole 3 days.

A bug? Or a feature?

Indeed it is the feature of end auction. Not sure how legal it is to end an auction right before the update, only to attack and rob the item back though.

Not that it really matters considering how horribly you all failed afterwards. And considering I'm adding trophies to my dead-by-defenses list anyway. :)

I use level checking of FEAR fighters and the crime list every day to know who attack me. ;)

Not that you as Fred or Gedeal for example can get the most deaths award anyway. There are others with a very high amount of deaths from earlier in the set when I had recording equipment up. I doubt anyone of the new attackers can catch up to that point, even if you commit suicide every remaining day to my defenses. And after all, I've said it in the other thread, the death count stopped when I started the contest. It would be unfair for someone who voted in the first day to lose because someone spam commited suicide the days the contest was running.

And I'm still waiting for your vote Antonis.
